Yeah, how do you think I feel at the launch?? At least the car doesn't distract from the boat. . . right? (that's what I keep telling myself). But it does get us to the lake and I'm an old dude anyway so I'm over it.

Yeah, like thatsmrmastercraft said, the boat makes up for it!

With that 2007 you could pull it with a total S$%^t box and I would even notice. My all time favorite. By the way what happen to the right front fender of the mini van?

Thanks for the compliment on the boat--we've only had it since September but I think we got a great deal and have put a good bit of sweat equity to make it even better.

As for the van. . . that was a result of a merge difficulty on my wife's part resulting in a true fender bender. When we got the $650 from the insurance company to have it fixed, we did the sensible thing and spent it on a wakeboard, a second battery, charger and some new ropes. This poor van's been scratched, scraped, and scuffed more ways than I can keep track of so it seemed that fixing a fender wrinkle was kind of pointless.

LMAO! If my wife would try to get that minivan in that garage there would be more damage imposed on that car.....and the garage!

NICE BOAT!
